Full list of appearances
Mayumi Karasugawa (烏川 真由美 Karasugawa Mayumi) who works as a teacher at Hamaguri High, an elite private school. This is a front for her job as one of the four bosses of Panther Claw.
Because of her strong interest in Miki Saotome, she tends to act as an informant at times. It was also through Miki's ex-boyfriend that Mayumi discovers Miki's dark secret as the murderer of Doctor Kisaragi, which only fuels her interest in Miki even more as she tells Miki that she is the only one who would love and accept her darkness.
It was later revealed that Mayumi had loved Miki more than any other woman, and would even kill her own subordinates to make sure she was safe. She was devastated when Honey brought a lifeless Miki to her, and was more than willing to start an operation to transfer Honey's life energy over to Miki at Honey's request. She is later scouted by Miki for the same reasons, to which she at first refuses, but once she saw that Miki was willing to give herself to her for Honey, she called her a "foolish woman" and proceeded to doing the operation. During the operation, Miki grabs her hand, her final words being, "Mayumi Karasugawa, Thank you", and with those words, she felt both a pain in her heart and from the wound she had previously received by being impaled by Miki's kukri in their last battle. She finishes the operation and takes Miki's lifeless body down a river in a rowboat. She has one final sentimental moment with Miki and dies alongside her body, laying in a rowboat they both were eventually submerged into the water sometime afterwards. Mayumi's mask was later shown floating above the water's surface at the end of the scene.
Mayumi is a cruel sadist. As a lesbian, she makes vicious advances on her students and was attracted to Honey and Miki at first sight.
Modus and ArsenalEdit
